Haj tutorial to CISF staff
New Delhi: The CISF is being given intensive lessons in how to greet haj pilgrims at the airport and handle the rush at the airport. The CISF officials said that special training is needed as most of the pilgrims come from far flung areas of the country and from diverse economic strata. The security agency will run special desks and appoint liaison officers to guide the visitors about the flight timings and other security norms.
The Haj pilgrimage started on December 12, with the arrival of over 9,000 Hajis from J&K, followed by over 10,000 pilgrims from all over the North India. The Delhi Airport has a separate terminal for the Haj pilgrims. The overall quota is 82,000 for the entire country. The pilgrims will start returning in the third week of February.
